In honor of Memorial Day this week's Paper Blooms challenge is to use red, white and blue. I used a premade red 5x7 card, matted it in blue and then cut a light blue stars mat and coordinating strips from 2 different designer papers from Creative Imaginations. The flags are toothpicks, the dimensional star stickers are EK Success, the small star flower centers are raindots, and of course the gorgeous hand crocheted flowers are Paper Blooms. I love these challenges at Paper Blooms and am happy I was able to participate this week. Check out the gorgeous Design Team creations HERE, and remember you don't have to use Paper Blooms to join in but once you get some of these gorgeous flowers you'll be hooked just like I am.
